Lair Hill house description
This light and bright well-loved artist's home is in a fantastic location. The house is walking/biking distance to downtown, PSU, OHSU, NCNM, Willamette Waterfront, Springwater Corridor, Marquam Park Nature Trails and Portland Farmer's Market. Blocks away from Portland's Public Transportation: Max Light Rail, Streetcar, and TriMet offering a connection to NW, Pearl District, and the airport etc. The ease of freeway access nearby gets you on your journey to the beach or the mountains that much quicker.
There is an abundant and uplifting amount of light that pours into this home through skylights in the main living area and upstairs bathroom. Along with the off-white walls and use of natural materials such as wood and limestone floors, the home has a contemporary and serene feel. High and open ceilings offer a loft-like living area, connecting the two floors. The clawfoot tub in the upstairs bath sits under skylights where you can soak to rest and recoup.
The outdoor areas of this house make it all the more special. French doors off the kitchen to the lovely urban private garden. A table and umbrella to enjoy your meals outside. French doors to a private terrace off the upstairs south bedroom. A sitting area at the front of the house to enjoy the morning sun. Or walk a block over to the local cafe for breakfast.
With all the modern amenities, this comfortable and peaceful home is the perfect place to stay while experiencing Portland. The access and proximity are unbeatable allowing you to visit more of the areas wonders.

I have used VRBO for many years when traveling. I will always look at the reviews when choosing a vacation rental. This house did not have any reviews but took a chance and I am glad I did. What a lovely home! Clean, bright, filled with hand picked antiques and books. We cooked Christmas dinner and what a delight to find every type of pan, utensil and appliance needed. The back yard was a wonderful little oasis. The ping pong table gave us hours of enjoyment. The location is perfect for getting around to all the areas of the city. This home is obviously loved and it shows. Do not hesitant, if you need a rental in Portland, choose this one!

About the owner: I love this home because of its location. I can be anywhere in the city in 5-10 minutes by car. A quick walk to downtown to see a movie. Hop on my bike and ride the Springwater Corridor, or walk/run the nature trails in Marquam Park. There is a lot that goes on around the waterfront in the summer. The access to that is fantastic.
Why the Owner Chose Lair Hill:
This home has great access to all neighborhoods where friends and family live. I can hop on the freeway to head to the coast, Central Oregon or the Gorge quickly.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The feel of this home is unique. It is very light, beautiful and extremely unique. I have put a lot of love and care into it. It's location is the big plus. I can be anywhere quickly and can walk downtown easily. I love having the outdoor living areas of my home as well.
